GitHub Discussions is now available as a public beta, providing you with a dedicated space for your community to ask and answer questions, and have conversations that are separate from issues in your repository.
Discussions work a lot like issues. However, with discussions you can also:
- Mark questions with an answer
- Convert issues into discussions
- Categorize discussions – fully customizable
- Have threaded conversations
- Pin up to 4 discussions
We will continue adding more functionality based on your feedback, including adding Discussions to GitHub for mobile as a beta.
If you are an admin or maintainer of a public repository you can enable Discussions via repository settings for your community today!
